(BLOOMINGTON) - The Bloomington Police Department is investigating an armed robbery of the CVS Store at 1000 North Walnut Street. The incident occurred at approximately 4:45 a.m. Monday morning.

Police are looking for a black male, who is six foot tall and was wearing a black toboggan, a dark leather jacket, dark sunglasses and black pants. Police say the man was armed with a dark-colored handgun.

Police say the man was armed with a dark-colored handgun. Police say the man may have a physical disability which was evident in his walking and with how he moved his hands. According to store employees, he may have feigned being mentally challenged upon entering the store.

The suspect entered the store and asked an employee for assistance in selecting notebooks and a binder. They then went to another part of the store to get other items. That is when the suspect displayed the handgun that he had slipped inside the binder. The man demanded money from the cash registers. After getting the money the man exited the store and fled southwest.

According to Bloomington Police Captain Joe Qualters, the man told the clerk he was from Atlanta, had been fired from a CVS Store previously, had a child with multiple sclerosis, and that he was going to "come in and start shooting people".
No one was injured during the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Joe Henry at (812) 349-3907 or the Bloomington Police Department at (812) 339-4477.
